Aaaaah. Vocals from the incomparable Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk). Guitar from the inestimable Buzz “King Buzzo” Osbourne (Melvins). Bass from the legendary Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, John Zorn, Tomahawk). Drumming from THE GREATEST LIVING METAL DRUMMER, Dave Lombardo (SLAYER!!!).
This comes from Fantômas’ second album, The Director’s Cut. It features covers of theme songs from a number of classic films, but since it’s coming in close on Halloween, I’m putting up for your amusement and edification their cover of Krzysztof Komeda’s theme to Rosemary’s Baby (also known as “Lullaby”).
To 1966 – the Year One. Happy Sunday, kids. Here’s Satan:
And as an added Halloween bonus, here’s Fantômas with another baby-related horror movie cover from The Director’s Cut, Ronald Stein’s “Spider Baby” (the theme to one of the GREATEST HORROR COMEDIES OF ALL TIME, 1964’s Spider Baby).
And, hell (literally), since I’m sitting here thinking about babies and Satan, I’ll toss you another bonus, their cover of Jerry Goldsmith’s theme to The Omen, “Ave Satani.”
